    The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has approved a special salary scale and new retirement age for teachers.

    The President increased the number of service years for the teachers from 35 to 40.

    The gesture was announced in Abuja on Monday by the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, in commemoration of the 2020 World Teachers Day.

    Over the years, Nigerian teachers have continued to agitate amongst others, an increase in their retirement age, welfare, and salaries.

    The minister, at the 2020 WTD celebration, explained that the implementation of the new teachers’ salary scheme was to encourage the teachers in delivering better services.

    The President said, “Government notes the emergency situation in our educational system with particular reference to the dearth of qualified and dedicated teachers to enhance the quality of teaching and learning at all levels of our educational system.

    “To address these challenge and set our country on the path of industrialisation where our educational system will produce the needed skills and manpower, I have approved the following:

    “The reintroduction of bursary award to education students in Universities and College of Education with assurance of automatic employment upon graduation, payment of stipends to Bachelor of Education students as well as granting them automatic employment after graduation is now a government policy.

    “The Tertiary Education Fund will now fund teaching practice in Universities and Colleges of Education, special salary scale for teachers in basic and secondary schools including provisions for rural posting allowance, science teachers allowance and peculiar allowance.

    Teachers are builder of talent. So they should not be only well paid but rated high.
